So I just subtitled exactly, word for word, what Macron said about sovereignty and Johnson - and not the mangled version you might get in the UK media (or from certain UK politicians) 😀 https://t.co/WHVtioVQtJ

cannot agree. human beings are woefully impressionable, vulnerable to behavioral-psychology manipulation. you may not think that you are but yes, you are. & children are, very much. if Rupert Murdoch had not lived, quite literally our society would be different. https://t.co/KJfnovudju

Another for @NatashaRandall on the miniature theme: Paul Guillaume's dining room, 22 Ave Foch, c. 1930. A silent, pristine room that will never need cleaning and in which no one can ever set foot.
